Weekend Racing is one of the latest products for the Betfan group to offer through Tipster TV. It is a horse racing tipster service that as the name suggests focuses on weekend races.
What does the product offer?
The copy for Tipster TV refers to Weekend Racing as providing a “pure rush of adrenaline” when a high priced winner comes in and this neatly encapsulates what the service is about. Rather than looking to provide tips that could be construed as boring by the casual punter, Weekend Racing has more of a view to making betting exciting whilst still turning a profit. This generally means backing longer odds horses on a combination of win and each way bets with the staking plan following the seemingly standard Betfan approach of 5 points per bet.
There are usually 6-8 bets that are advised each weekend and over the 3 months that Weekend Racing has been proofed, these have produced a very respectable strike rate of 50.94%.
How does the product work?
Rather unfortunately there is very little said about what the selection process behind Weekend Racing actually entails. In fact, the only thing that is really said is that selections come from a “highly respected and well protected value advisor” who in turn leads a team of tipsters. This team allegedly invest much of the week analysing statistics as well as calling upon a number of industry contacts.
What is the initial investment?
There are two options if you want to buy Weekend Racing which are a quarterly and monthly (actually 28 days and 90 days). These sell for £45 and £90 respectively (with VAT on top of both of those) however at the time of writing, when you sign up both of these are offered at half price meaning you will pay just £22.50 or £45 (once again, plus VAT) for your first period. As is typical for a Betfan product there is unfortunately no real money back guarantee in place for Weekend Racing.
What is the rate of return?
In just 3 months, Weekend Racing has made a profit of 240.16 points which is definitely an impressive figure. Even more impressive is the ROI which stands at 92.37%.
Based on a cursory glance, Weekend Racing looks to be an ideal weekend bettors service with big profits and exciting bets. The only problem that I see with the setup is that whilst weekend based services tend to be aimed at the casual bettor who fancies getting a bit of an edge, Weekend Racing’s pricing and staking is more in line with a full on weekly tipster service.
In order to approach the kind of profits that Tipster TV talk about you need to betting £20 per point and at 5 point bets, this puts Weekend Racing well beyond the stakes that an average bettor can reach. There is also the fact that at £45, you could easily sign up for one of Betfan’s longer running (and more proven) systems that offer daily tips.
